Maxwell’s heavy-transportation ultracapacitor meets EEC standards

  • 21-Mar-2011 12:43 EDT

The North American office of U.K.’s Vehicle Certification Agency has granted European Economic Community (EEC)-Type Approval and Conformity of Production (CoP) clearance to Maxwell Technologies’ 125-V Heavy Transportation Ultracapacitor Module (HTM125). The EEC-Type Approval certifies that the HTM125 complies with the EEC vehicle electromagnetic compatibility requirements of Council Directive 72/245/EEC as last amended by Commission Directive 2009/19/EC and ECE Regulation 10.03. The HTM125 was tested to ensure immunity to radiated and conducted disturbances for functions related to direct control of vehicles and compliance with requirements regarding control of unwanted radiated and conducted emissions to the intended use of electrical or electronic equipment in the installed or adjacent vehicles. “Several European heavy vehicle and equipment manufacturers and hybrid and electric drive system integrators are designing the HTM125 into braking energy recuperation and torque-assist systems,” said David Schramm, Maxwell’s President and CEO. “The EEC-Type Approval and CoP clearance demonstrate that Maxwell’s procurement, production, and documentation control processes meet rigorous industry standards.” The 125-V Heavy Transportation series of ultracapacitor modules is suitable for hybrid buses and trucks, trolleys and other light rail vehicles, mining and construction equipment, and seaport cranes.
